#MovieThread starts here.
Today's film, #1, 1984's "The Terminator," because they're showing T2 at the movie theatre this week and it probably works better if I've seen T1 recently.
Tonight's film, #3! 1991's "Terminator 2: Judgment Day"! In the movie theatre, so: I'll be back?
Tonight's film, #4! A friend on the other website is making me watch "Christine," which I understand to be "what if Duel but it's demons or some shit."
This kind of thing works better for me on the TV, so see y'all in two hours.
Today's film! #5, 1932 Best Picture nominee "Smilin' Through."
I've deffo looked at the Wikipedia page, but no idea what this one's about.
Movie #6! I watched spoopy zoom call horror movie "Host."
I don't watch a lotta these by pretty much any definition of "these," but, I dunno, at 56 minutes, pretty efficient use of all parts of the cliché buffalo.
Tonight's film, movie #7! Ripped from the headlines, it's 1932 Best Picture nominee "I Am A Fugitive From a Chain Gang."
...Finally, one I feel like I can safely assume is exactly what it says on the tin.
Movie #10: I think Tarantino probably sucks, but people won't shut up about him, so I'm heading out to go see the first half of Kill Bill in the cinema.
Movie #11: I've got 2019's "The Assistant" on -- trying to clear out some stuff from early in the pandemic.
God, what a relentless, crushing slog. Which I imagine is the point! As such, success? (Cripes, oh cripes.)
Movie #12: This spring's "Underwater," because I'll watch Kristen Stewart fight a Cthulhu, sure.
Tonight's movie, #13, "An American Pickle."
Seth Rogen is watchable enough, and I love a pickle, I assume that averages out to something I'll enjoy.
Movie #14: 1973's "Live and Let Die." Third Bond in a row with a different face than the last one, let's see how this one does.
I've put on movie #15: 1974's "The Man with the Golden Gun," a film that sure appears to open with a Sir Christopher Lee third nipple reveal.
More clearing out of my downloads folder, movie #16: 2008 political dramedy "Swing Vote," which I think is about Kevin Costner somehow getting to cast the One Vote the (fictionalised) 2008 election hangs on.
Once again I return to the downloads folder for some early-lockdown movies with "Capone." (#17!)
There was a lot of talk when this released about how this redeems Trank as a director post-"Fant4stic," and that's fair — it's well-made, and there's some great sequences in here, but at no point does he actually manage to make me *care* about this person or his family, which makes it all a bit flat.
Hardy, of course, plays a terrific disease-riddled Capone losing what little is left of his mind.
Heading out to see movie #18, "The Personal History of David Copperfield."
Heading out to see #19, "Tenet." ...Or, perhaps, I've just come back from seeing it?
Movie #20: I kept getting interrupted, so I watched it in chunks over the past couple days, but I rewatched "A Bug's Life."
It was fine. Better'n I remembered.
Heading out to see the second half of movie #10, or, movie #21: Kill Bill vol. 2.
I assume in this one she Kills Bill.
Movie #22: Toy Story 2.
Better'n the first one, etcetera.
Movie #23, rewatched Breakfast Club because some days just be like that.
Movie #24: Apparently the shortest film ever nominated for Best Picture, "She Done Him Wrong" is only about an hour long.
Ya gotta hope that's not all it's got goin' for it.
Movie #25, I've put on something called "Time Trap," because, frankly, you can't put something called "Time Trap" where I can see it and not expect me to bite.
The dog is called Boss, which I think is fun.
@The_T It could have a very local release here in my living room as early as ten minutes from now, when it finishes downloading.
@Alexis how forward thinking of the film companies.......
@The_T That would be odd scheduling, though, on account of me being only 40 minutes into the first one.
@Alexis they are legitimately good movies. in places. I'm going to watch the 3rd one... soon.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
